Mission: Athletes will donate their prizes to associations that advocate against violence.
From December 13 to 20, 2019, La Saharienne will venture into the heart of Osa. For the first time in Costa Rica, a great 100% feminine and supportive multisport event will take place. It is a sport and human adventure out of the ordinary. For a week, the 70 women's teams of two members will tackle tests in the disciplines: trail, mountain bike, canoe, bow and arrow, and ax throwing.
Bruno Pomart (Raid Director), Jean-Marc Baldinger (Race Director), and Damien Vierdet are the representatives of the French organization La Saharienne. They explored the routes through the beautiful landscapes of the Osa region in the South Pacific to prepare a unique sporting event. They committed themselves with the Government of Costa Rica, the Osa Chamber of Tourism (CATUOSA), and the French Embassy to create a competition that will leave unforgettable memories in the participants and spectators.

Osa welcomes the athletes who will come with their families and friends from all over the world!
Every Friday, the EcoFeria takes place at the Patron`s restaurant. It is a space to get to know local farmers and produce and meet people from all over the world, who promoted eco-friendly and small businesses in the area.
Taking a walk through this place not only recharges you with good energy and happiness, but it is also a gift for the soul to appreciate such beautiful views. The diversity in attractions is fascinating. You can enjoy from the newly opened Butterfly Kingdom, fresh trout, hot springs, Swiss cheeses, chocolate factory, to delicious artisan bread. Restaurants offer unique cuisine, hotels, trails and birdwatching.
Just look back, when you are in one of the almost pristine beaches of the South Pacific, to appreciate its prominent presence. This mountainous row extends parallel along the south coast, a barrier between the General Valley and the “Ballena Coast”.
